If you search these forums you will see plenty of identical posts over the past few months.

The TV distribution system in your apartments is most likely using the same channels as Freeview or blocking these which is why you get no signal. You either need to get your body corporate/building manager to get this fixed or invest in an indoor aerial which may work OK.

From what I have been told there is one installer company who have done huge numbers of apartment installs over the past ~5 years that are all identical. This is going to be a very widespread issue and is going to affect a lot of people.
